This is the sixth show of 13 recorded for export to the United States. It is thought that this original telerecording, once catalogued with ABC at Teddington, Middlesex until 1968, may be in the private hands of someone in the United Kingdom.

Also some of the 13 copies sent to America are known to exist and in the possession of a private collector in Arizona or New Mexico.

Tommy Steele had been booked to appear on tonight’s show, after postponing the 4th April appearance, but he broke his ankle in an accident a day before the live broadcast and had to cancel.

Jack Good books Billy Fury for a further four shows on 25th April, 9th May, 23rd May and the very final show of 30th May 1959.
